This past decade has been no bed of roses. There have been many ups and downs, with challenges that have sometimes felt never-ending and even at points terminal. More recently, we have all suffered and had to endure the effects of the pandemic. The Coffee House, like many other businesses, has constantly been adapting to the changing restrictions. We have thankfully been fortunate and believe we will make it through and thrive for many years to come.
When we think back to those early negotiations with our first prospective landlord, there were already great lessons. Business is about building relationships. It is about trust, honesty, respect, and often putting others ahead of ourselves. We have made mistakes, and some we are not proud of, but what's important is that we have learned from every single one and tried to do better next time. Without our first landlords, Eric and Bridget, taking that chance on us, at the tender ages of only 24, we do not doubt that The Coffee House would not be what it is today. We will be forever grateful for the chances that these two individuals took on what would become a decade-old business.
The list of individuals that we would want to thank is endless. We have worked with many great people over the past ten years and served millions of customers. All of whom contributed to the story in their unique ways.
So thank you to everyone, both present, and past, who have taken part in this journey. We look forward to the next decade of changing the way people eat, drink and relax within their local communities.
